– 2005 Harley-Davidson Road King Classic FLHRCI
Step out to the garage and there it is, resting beneath the flickering light. The Road King® Classic. A machine dripping with the heritage of the open road. Giant headlamp and nacelle. Wide whitewalls on laced wheels. Full fenders. Generous floorboards. Detachable windshield. Tooled leather seat and bags. Just standing there, you feel like you’re on top of the world. Then, in the saddle you thumb the starter and bring the EFI Twin Cam 88® powertrain to life. The feeling gets even better. Think ahead to the smooth ride thanks to a refined chassis and air-adjustable rear suspension. You’ll make good use of the cruise control. But it will have to wait for daybreak. For now, put the key back in the pocket, turn off the lights and hit the hay. Knowing your Road King Classic will be ready to go anytime you are.
